This is technically not “my” finish. Bea sewed this bag on Friday night for her sister. Ever since we rehabilitated a baby robin this past summer, Esther has loved birds and really wants a cockatiel. So when I saw this Japanese linen fabric with cockatiels, I had to have it to make something for her, but Bea beat me to it!
Bea traced a heart onto Heat n Bond lite and fused it to the outside of the bag, which is a print from Joel Dewberry’s new Notting Hill line. She picked a blue flower print for the lining and handles. The pattern is from Diary of a Quilter and uses two fat quarters to make the entire bag.
She sewed all the parts of the bag except the decorative stitch used as topstitching around the opening of the bag. It is currently employed to tote around My Little Ponies.
I also have a pic of a WIP to share. These are the first few stars for my Modern Quilt Guild Madrona Road Challenge entry. I’ve never sewn y-seams before!
Linking up to Plum and June’s Monday Link Up. She’s shared a super cute fabric bucket and now I’ve just got to make one for my girls’ hair ties.
